NAME
       seq - print a sequence of numbers

SYNOPSIS
       seq [OPTION]... LAST
       seq [OPTION]... FIRST LAST
       seq [OPTION]... FIRST INCREMENT LAST

DESCRIPTION
       Print numbers from FIRST to LAST, in steps of INCREMENT.

       -f, --format=FORMAT
	      use printf style floating-point FORMAT

       -s, --separator=STRING
	      use STRING to separate numbers (default: \n)

       -w, --equal-width
	      equalize width by padding with leading zeroes

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       If  FIRST  or  INCREMENT  is  omitted,  it  defaults  to 1.  That is, an omitted INCREMENT
       defaults to 1 even when LAST is smaller than FIRST.  FIRST, INCREMENT, and LAST are inter-
       preted  as  floating point values.  INCREMENT is usually positive if FIRST is smaller than
       LAST, and INCREMENT is usually negative if FIRST is greater than  LAST.	 FORMAT  must  be
       suitable  for  printing	one  argument  of type `double'; it defaults to %.PRECf if FIRST,
       INCREMENT, and LAST are all fixed point decimal numbers with maximum precision  PREC,  and
       to %g otherwise.
